Vina Robles Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 750mL WEWine Enthusiast WWWilfred Wong of Wine.com
Red Garnet color, the 2017 vintage presents aromas of cassis, blueberry, cedar, and anise, with hints of black olives and juniper berry. Full-bodied with flavors of cassis and blueberry, licorice notes, chewy and chalky tannins.
This wine delivers loads of Paso Robles richness at a fair price, starting with lush aromas of black cherry, caramel and mocha cream. The palate starts soft and inviting, with more cherry and caramel, then firms up with tighter tannins and penetrating acidity. Editors' Choice
COMMENTARY: The 2017 Vina Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers nicely-focused attributes of this grape variety. Its well-defined aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and vanilla stay sturdy and long on the palate. Pair it with a grilled ribeye. (Tasted: September 13, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
